The Pokemon Company Announces US Marshadow Distribution

Retailer GameStop will be offering distribution codes for the legendary Pokemon this October.

The Pokemon Company recently announced that GameStop will be handing out distribution codes for the legendary Marshadow from October 9 to October 23. This news may be especially pleasing to Pokemon Sun and Moon owners, as currently the only method of obtaining Marshadow is via special distribution, and the only event that's distributed the Pokemon thus far took place in Japan over the summer.

Marshadow is a unique Pokemon, being the first (and only) Fighting/Ghost type monster in the series. It can learn a variety of moves, from Rock Throw to Shadow Claw -- though the Gamestop-distributed Marshadow will be at level 50 and know Spectral Thief, Close Combat, Force Palm, and Shadow Ball, with Technician as its ability. Spectral Thief is Marshadow's special move, allowing it to damage opponents and steal their stat increases at the same time. It also comes with a special Z-Crystal, Marshadium Z, which gives Marshadow another signature Z-Move attack -- the Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike.

For those of you who aren't familiar with obtaining gift Pokemon via distribution, here's what to do once you get your code:

  • Make sure your system's wireless is enabled, then launch your Pokemon Sun or Moon game.
  • Choose Mystery Gift from the main menu
  • Select "Get with Code/Password"
  • Select "Yes" twice to connect to the Internet
  • Enter your code

After that, load your game and chat with the delivery man in your nearest Pokemon Center to receive your Marshadow. That's all there is to it!
